Stocks gave back sizable gains today, with the Dow eking out a marginal win despite trading up over 200 points at its session highs. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq, meanwhile, finished in the red after spending most of the day above fair value.

Despite the late-afternoon pivot ahead of a historically bullish month, all three major indexes earlier came within a chip-shot of their mid-summer annual peak. Investors spent the day unpacking a trifecta of positive headlines; upbeat gross domestic product (GDP) readings, falling bond yields, and dovish commentary from a Fed president. 

  • Why auto stocks got a lift today.
  • Steer clear of this struggling retail stock.
  • Plus, casino stock lags behind; a PHM 'buy' signal; and an earnings winner.
